Could your bank account benefit from a few thousand quid? TBH, whose doesn't? Well this could actually be a reality, as The Million Pound Drop is returning to our tellies, but with this time with some big changes. Just think of all those clothes you could buy.


Channel 4 has brought back the show, which has now been rebranded as The 100K Drop - I'm guessing their budget was cut pretty drastically then.

The low-cost version of the show will be now shown in the afternoon competing against daytime rivals like The Chase and Tipping Point.

Davina McCall will be back as the host of the programme, which will see contestants start with £100,000 which they must place over trap doors.

Hopefully, the ones they choose will be the correct answers to seven general knowledge questions meaning they walk away with a huge cash prize, just like these two did...

If not, they will see the money disappear and they'll walk away with nothing. Risky or what!

Talking about the show, Davina said: "I literally love hosting this show and couldn't be more thrilled that we are back and coming to daytime.

″£100,000 is a properly life-changing amount of cash and I'm crossing my fingers for some big money wins. I can't wait to see you all every weekday afternoon."

She's so lovely!

The show has seen celebrities, like Alan Carr and Joey Essex, try and win money for charities too.

The 100k Drop will run for 12 weeks and is expected to air next year, so there's still quite a while to wait.

I'll just have to manage my money a bit better until then, by the looks of it.
